Touring Time

Oxford (28 April 2011) - It’s that time of year again… nights are lighter, days are warmer and the voice in your head calling you to the open road is starting to drown out everything else. Putting cold, dark days behind us and feeling the sun again can only mean one thing – touring season is here.

Around the country, riders are starting to plan where to go this year – whether you want to spend every weekend on ride outs around the UK, head over to Europe for a touring holiday, or take a dream trip down Route 66, now’s the time to get planning.

From a weekend to a whole holiday, nothing beats the freedom of a few days to dedicate to your Harley-Davidson® and a new destination. Admittedly, many riders don’t take too much away with them – but we all need a few essentials. That’s where the new Harley® Premium Touring Luggage Collection comes in. No matter how much – or how little – space you need, there’s something to solve our packing problems.

Sleek and versatile, the collection ranges from backpacks and day bags, to overnighters and deceptively-roomy touring cases. The Rolling Touring bag is ideal for a cross-country trip, as it comes equipped with wheels and an extension handle to make transfer to the hotel as easy as possible. The Touring Bag, meanwhile, is sized to suit a weekend excursion and the name of the Overnight Bag speaks for itself. The full range also includes a Three-Pocket Fairing Pouch, which mounts on your dashboard, putting storage at your fingertips, and the Collapsible Rack Bag – the ideal ‘just in case’ storage solution.

For those serious mileage munchers amongst you, check out the Harley® Hammock seat which comes in heated or normal versions - or for simply the best - upgrade to the revolutionary Harley Road Zeppelin™ Seat. This remarkable seat removes pressure points and "hot spots" by adjusting the amount of air contained in each air bladder within the seat.

And this month, one lucky subscriber is going to get the chance to win their own Zeppelin® worth £669!
